Studies Show The Interesting Links Between Your Birth Month & Your Health

Modern science has mostly dismissed the link between disease and date of birth, despite evidence in recent studies.

The seasons were once a huge influence in medicine, and many doctors believed your birth month would affect your health, both mentally and physically.

This study at the Columbia University had a look at medical records of 1.75 million people, born between 1900 and 2000, there was compelling evidence showing that many diseases and disorders like ADHD or reproductive complications, were strongly linked to month of birth.

Birth Month And Health

Summer babies are generally healthier and this is believed to be because of peaked vitamin D exposure.

This study published in the journal Heliyon states that those born in June, July and August had higher birth weights, and most grew up to be tall adults. While those born in December, January and February weighed less at birth and reached puberty earlier, they were also shorter adults.

Children born in fall/autumn are more susceptible to asthma, this is linked to the fact that these children are still very young when experiencing their first winter cold and flu season.  This  2008 study claims that those born in September, October and November had 30% more chance of being asthmatic.

More than 6 million deaths related to heart disease were looked at in this 2011 study which showed that that most of these individuals were November born.

Those born in early spring are more likely to develop cardiovascular diseases while those born in early fall are more likely to suffer from respiratory illness.
